Cathell Team Repeats as 2019 Tourney Champions !!
A record number 39 players participated in the 2019 Lyon Park / Ashton Heights Golf Tourney at South Riding Golf Club on Sunday October 13, 2019. Two teams tied for first place. Lyon Parker Chris O’Donnell and her team including Ellen Manges and Tracey Switzer shot a sixteen-under par 56, as did the Ashton Heights team of Ron Cathell, Tim Anderson, Al Johnson and Sabino Molina. However, the Cathell team won the tie-breaker and the 2019 Championship trophy, by tie-breaker rules. Greg and Henry Bramham, Bobby Hong and Wally Hays finished 3rd, a stroke back at fifteen under par.
Individual prizes of $50 gift certificates donated by our sponsors were awarded to closest to pin and long drive winners, Ellen Manges (twice!) Al Johnson, Greg Bramham, Mike Pohl and Gregg Siegal. Tracey Switzer won the Putt-off (and two dozen Pro V1x golf balls) by sinking her 35 foot putt before everyone else.
This year’s golf tourney raised $2,600 which will be used to help fund the Lyon Park Community Center’s Legacy Endowment. The golf tourney has raised $19,150 over its nine-year history.
The Lyon Park and Ashton Heights communities are grateful for the generosity of tourney participants as well as our Clarendon Merchants who donated gift certificate prizes: Circa, Lyon Hall, Green Pig Bistro, Texas Jack’s and Four Sisters Grill. Please support our generous merchant sponsors!
I send my sincere gratitude to Ron Cathell for his efforts in recruiting players to this year’s tourney and for helping me coordinate the tourney while I was in China the week before the event!
